Most EUWID sources tend to paint a picture of rather weak to disappointing demand for cartonboard in the UK.
The reason for this is slower demand from end customers, which was also encountered by British merchants. Another factor for GD cartonboard is that converters have pretty good amounts on stock and are thus able to scale back their ordering activity.
Lead times for GD II cartonboard are frequently three to four weeks long. Sources told EUWID that contract prices are still unchanged.
